On Sunday evening, a hard-fought Super Bowl LII game resulted in the Philadelphia Eagles securing victory over the New England Patriots, with a score of 41-33. Considering the New England team's historic propensity for victory, many on Twitter believe that the Patriots losing serves as a sign that Trump will be defeated as well.
As Borchers also noted, Patriots have, for many, come to symbolize the Trump administration. As the author put it, "Trump and the Patriots go beyond mutual admiration. To some, the Patriots are the sports world’s version of Trump — attacked by the establishment, persecuted by a major TV network and still winning."
Thus, for many, the New England team's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl symbolized a loss for the Trump administration as well — something reflected in many tweets shared on Sunday after the game.
